Sex trafficking victim Cyntoia Brown sentenced to life after killing man who bought her

By Erika June Smith,

In 2004, Cyntoia Brown was sentenced to life in prison because she killed the man who bought her. 13 years later, she is still in prison, and celebrities are joining the rallying cry to free her.

When she was just 16, Cyntoia Brown was being sex-trafficked by a pimp named “Kutthroat.” She was verbally, physically, and sexually abused then sold to a 43-year-old Nashville realtor, named Johnny Allen, who used her for sex.

According to Newsweek, Cyntoia eventually shot and killed Allen after being taken to his home.
